    Hey, this is my first politics essay and in the structure sheet it simply says introduction... I've got no idea what goes into an introduction for this, any ideas?
    The question is "To what extent have recency factors replaced class as a determinant of voting behaviour in the UK?"

    You usually give some definitions of the terms in the question eg. recency (I assume thats what you mean) and identify the "discriminant" in the question - in this case, it is "replaced", so you have to make sure that you are not just saying that there has been a rise in recency factors, but that they have REPLACED class. Then, you say a few sentences outlining your argument of later paragraphs, giving an indication of how you will conclude your essay.
